think john kerry has been the leading candidate all along. but some people at the table think john kerry has negative bus i think he is the leading candidate. the other big ticket item here is the treasury secretary. you can see geithner leaving. and there is talk of erskine bowles or charles djo lew. >> they lost colin, the mild mannered senator in congress and the senator that introduced rice when she was nominated to be the u.n. ambassador, when you lose collins you have lost the world. i don't understand how she went around with meetings to present her best side to the mccain and graham. to collins, ayotte and came out on the -- i'm talking about susan rice. she came out on the wrong end of this. and for some reason. i think her nomination is in deep trouble. the president if he is smart not going to nominate here. if he does, benghazi issue is going to rise again. >> bret: u.n. palestinian vote significance big picture? >> there is a great irony. the vote happened precisely and deliberately on the day on which in 1947 the general assembly voted to wide to british palestine to two st

never sat down for this kind of conversation. and is a former aide to john kerry told politico that kerry and george w. bush never spoke to one another after john kerry conceded the election. joining me now, pulitzer prize winning columnist for "the washington post" and msnbc analyst eugene erickson. and we have all -- i won't speak for you. i have -- i have more than once, i think, said we will keep in touch, let's keep in touch, to someone i did not then keep in touch with. i don't think i've ever been as phony about it, though, as these two guys today promising to stay in touch with each other after lunch. >> yeah. it was probably -- i've heard some people say the most awkward conversation mitt romney has had since his last conversation. you know, for what it's worth, like, i don't think that either of them really want to stay in touch. i mean, the whole thing was a sill symbolic gesture and i think we can say it is a classy move to do this. it is something that is -- it's -- even if it's purely symbolic, sometimes we need the symboli symbolism. sometimes we need to say, esp

the susan rice situation why the republicans were finding it so hard. >> cenk: one thing they want john kerry because they want that seat to open up in the senate to put scott brown in there, as well. >> cenk: that's a great point that's why they call him epic. >> i hadn't thought of that, it was a great point. all of a sudden, the next day we see this on another network. >> now that there's aningling of a chance that a is not seat might open up in massachusetts for scott brown to run for guess who's doing all of the dirty work to make sure that senate seat opens up? tadaa. >> are you going to sue her? >> she actually called and said can i go for it and i said yes. joe biden went to costco today. really, one of my favorite political stories of the year. went in, had his cart and there's great pictures of biden here going through. he bought cookies children's books, a big apple pie fire logs. how does he need fire logs, isn't somebody getting him the fire logs. the favorite part, though, he didn't purchase a set of tires when asked, he said man, i don't drive anymore. >> cenk: my underst

billion. >> no. but, you know, john mccain still had his senate seat and john kerry still was in the senate so there's still players in washington. you're looking at mitt romney, he didn't carry new hampshire, massachusetts, or california, his home states. there is no such thing as a romney republican anymore. they're a dwindling tribe. he doesn't have any power. he's coming today, obama looked good because he was showing a reaching out, the winner sticking out his hand and shows a spirit of bipartisanship he's trying to create through the gridlock. >> matt, are they still stunned? i watch this from 7:00 in the morning until i go to bed at midnight. i thought the election was much more pro-obama in the results than i expect. won a strong victory, a solid mandate. are they stunned by that? >> yeah, in some respects they are and trying to grapple with what happened and how their expectations got so high and how they felt -- >> stu stevens right now think tonight we're trying to figure that out. are they still going to the tea leaves? what happened here? >> there's a bit of t

on a sunday show to get the secretary of state job. she says she would much prefer senator john kerry for that job. because, yeah, he's never been a politician. or presumably, she's still okay with the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's not like she's ever run for anything. you know, obviously she's never been on a sunday show. if she had been on a sunday show, she'd ever gone on a sunday show, that obviously would have disqualified her from becoming secretary of state. that would show her to be behaving in a political fashion. everybody knows the secretary of state cannot do anything political. seriously? there is a mismatch between the seriousness of the things that we actually need to get done as a nation and the quality of the system in washington that is the means by which we must get those things done. syria is not our war, and syria is not going to be our war. but there are tens of thousands of people dead there already. and the regime there appears to have just turned off the lights, pulled the plug, disconnected that country entirely from the eyes of the world.
